MINI Paceman, the concept presented by the British brand at the 2011 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, will hit the market in 2013 and will be known as the Countryman Coupe. The inside information was revealed by Car and Driver.

That’s the new info we have for you right now, so it’s time for some speculation. We think this is actually a corporate decision taken by MINI in order to combine sales figures of the coupe and five-door. As a result, the Countryman will surely become their biggest success story ever, justifying a move into the lucrative crossover segment.

When it lands, expect the new MINI to feature a similar engine lineup to that of the Countryman, including both naturally aspirated and turbocharged 1.6-liter units. There should also be a clear choice of front or all-wheel drive.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
